Art is not only a weapon, but it is a vehicle for change. Art can drive you where you want to go and drop you off at a place where you can finally make a difference. Art is a platform for change and creation. Creation is pure. It comes from a place inside ourselves that pushes us to keep going. Creators aspire, perspire and inspire others to create too. The world is a ready canvas that has been splattered on, stroked, punctured, weathered, burnt, beat up, illuminated and sometimes forgotten about. Dare to create. If every artist, crafter, creator, visionary and genius came together for the overall good of our worldly canvas, our home would be even more beautiful.
So the activist and the artist get together to create: artivism. Using art to raise awareness about issues dealing with racism, sexism, classism, politics, religion, education or anything else that is desperate for change in our society. Artivism can be such a powerful tool. It allows everyone to express themselves and be heard, while standing up for what they believe in. This is the start of a new revolution. We all need it. Together we can create change and a better world for everyone.
Creation is calling you to get out of your head and out into the world. Let it fuel you. DARE TO CREATE…what are you waiting for?
